I think this should be chown root:video, chmod ug=rw or similar.
(Right here, it's screwing up such that it's root:root. I've not poked at it.)

Alpine Linux has used mdev (which is from *busybox*, not gentoo) for quite
a while. Adding Xorg the usual way (setup-xorg) pulls in udev; it's
*possible* to install X and use mdev, if you add the right config files
(eg, from mdev-like-a-boss).
Recently, Alpine switched from old udev to eudev (a gentoo project); this
only affects systems with udev installed.
If you want to use mdev instead of udev, I think this is what I did.
- disable any X display manager or autostart script, since you could end up
-git clone git://github.com/slashbeast/mdev-like-a-boss, then read the notes.
-add xf86-input-keyboard, xf86-input-mouse, and (for laptops)
-copy xorg.conf.d/* to /etc/xorg.conf.d/
-make sure you have acpid enabled:
rc-update |grep acpid
#if it's not enabled:
rc-update add acpid
(this is so you can shut down cleanly if you break stuff)
- Restart, check that X works:
- exit X
- disable udev, mount a tmpfs filesystem over /dev, and test mdev:
service udev stop
mount -t tmpfs mdev /dev
service mdev start
- check that X works (if you copied the config files and added the drivers,
it *should be* fine)
- disable udev/eudev, enable mdev and hwdrivers:
rc-update del eudev || rc-update del udev
rc-update add mdev ; rc-update add hwdrivers
- Restart, check that X works.
- Re-enable your X autostart script/display manager of choice.
Most of that is safety checking, so you won't accidentally lock yourself
